Superstar Salman Khan is presently gearing up for the release of his next film Bharat. Also starring Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Tabu, Jackie Shroff and Suniel Shetty in pivotal roles, the movie is set to buzz into theatres on 5th June.
Bharat, an official adaptation of South Korean film Ode to My Father (2014), is bankrolled by Khan’s brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri, who has previously worked with the megastar on Bodyguard (2011). After the release of Bharat, the duo will collaborate once again for a film called Veteran.
Just like Bharat, Veteran is also a remake of a South Korean film. While Salman Khan has been locked to play the male lead, the makers are yet to finalize the female lead opposite the superstar.
Talking about Veteran, Atul told an Indian daily, “I saw the film and I liked it. I thought it is an opportunity to make it with him. It is a class film. I showed him the film and he felt the same. Salman has given a go ahead. He will play the detective in the film.”
Adding further, the actor-filmmaker said, “Adaptations are never literal, adaptations are always a starting point. After that, you blend it according to the sensibilities of the audience. It will have many big things, I have to make it bigger and larger as the expectations are huge every time Salman does a film. We hope to start sometime next year.”
Salman Khan is also doing brother Arbaaz Khan’s Dabangg 3, which rolls into cinemas on 20th December 2019.
